Wolfie Smith leads South London's premier Marxist revolutionary movement - the Tooting Popular Front. Aided by his best friends Ken, Speed, and Tucker (and also on occasion by girlfriend Shirley), his constant battle against the establishment, democracy, capitalism, and much of modern society in general fails at every turn. Of course, unlike successful revolutionaries, Wolfie is more than slightly work-shy.
